Thank you for your continued support. We just had another successful hay fund drive and between the hay we have here and the new funds, the JERAS horses & burros are set into October. This gives us a great sense of relief and we wish to express our sincere gratitude to all of our supporters. Our next big expenditure will be in September, when our vet comes  out to do the required yearly inspection for our Az.Equine Rescue License, give the horses check ups and take blood samples from the dogs since they are all on thyroid medication. By the way, we highly recommend Dr. Jean Dodds’ new book, The Canine Thyroid Epidemic. http://www.amazon.com/Canine-Thyroid-Epidemic-Answers-Need/dp/1617810169

We highly recommend all dog owners get this book for themselves and their veterinarians. Her research has found that >60% of aggressive and > 40% of fearful dogs are low thyroid. Since all the JERAS dogs came here because of being abandoned and having  behavioral problems, it seems we have hit the jackpot with all ten being found to be low thyroid. A pill twice a day makes an enormous difference in their physical and emotional health.

We saved a little dog last month from being put to sleep by the local shelter due to the fact she came down with possible distemper.  Tessie was kept in isolation here and recovered beautifully. Yesterday, she went to her new home in Phoenix. Here she is wearing her new red collar and playing with a basenji and Portugese Podengo.

Today, we received word that a cute little chihuahua/dachshund mix named Marcus had been at the shelter 7 weeks and today his time was up. So, now Marcus is here. He is < one year old, lively & playful. He needs a loving home, so please ask around. Here is his Youtube video I just took tonight. He is awfully cute! He still needs to be neutered, but if you are in Mohave County, there is a free program for households with incomes under $35,000. If need be, we will have him done at the low cost clinic.

Marcus needs a home!

We coordinated the rescue of a beautiful Jindo from California 2 weeks ago. After 3 years, his owner dumped him in a high kill shelter. His video was so heart wrenching, as he sat in the corner of his cage looking very sad. A dog rescuer/rehabber in New Mexico said she would take him, train him and find him a home, but she did not have the money to get him to her. I networked him and started a Chipin for him and the next thing we knew, we had him out of the shelter, boarded a few days, then transported to Donna. He is doing great there and will be neutered and then put up for adoption. Have you ever seen a happier face?

Thank you so much again, we are blessed to have the friends we do.

Sincerely,

Cathy and the Gang
